Known for its authentic Northern Italian cuisine, the new Armani’s restaurant features a fresh, sophisticated design and an atmosphere ideal for a romantic dinner for two, a get-together with friends or an upscale business function. With floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Tampa Bay, guests can take in spectacular panoramic views during dinner and enjoy a drink on the outdoor patio before or after their meal.
Armani’s signature antipasto bar allows guests to create their own first course from a selection of more than 30 items and a dedicated station offers fresh made-to-order Caesar salads. Armani’s “primi piatti” menu includes vegetarian, pasta and soup selections, while main courses range from veal scaloppini in a truffle sauce over mascarpone polenta to wild salmon on pan fried risotto bianco.

Armani's Ratings and Reviews

We went for the Groupon 6 course tasting. We have also done the 6 course tasting at Cafe Ponte a number of times. While the food at Armani's was very good the food & presentation at Cafe Ponte was better. The ambiance at Armani's is 2nd to none in the Tampa Bay Area.

I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner experience with close family. The food (generous portions), atmosphere (cozy), service (excellent by the attendant) and level of interaction was outstanding. We were even offered a free desert however declined as our party consumed to much food already. Will continue to enjoy the attributes of your dining establish for years to come.

Armani's is incredible. The view is gorgeous and many of the tables are set up to get a full view of the bay and skyline. Go before sunset! The food was excellent, the prices were high but not outrageous for the ambiance and the view. Even better than the food was the service. Khalid was one of the best servers we have ever had.

Have eaten at Armani's several times and normally rate it 5 stars. On this one occasion, our veal and swordfish dishes were way over cooked. Everything else was fantastic as usual. Hoping this was an isolated incident. Will try the restaurant again.

Disappointed. I ordered the veal, for which they claim fame and it was over breaded, over cooked, dry, tough. The prices are very high and we were expecting more.
To be fair, they did remove my meal from the bill without prompting and they did remember my husband's birthday with a delicious piece of cake.
I will recommend the antipasto bar. A large and varied selection of cheeses, vegetables and meats.

First time at this restaurant and looked forward to discovering a place described as 'fine' Northern Italian and one of Tampa's best establishments.
Setting is the best part, while food is ok and service not so good. It is just not that polished of a place ... It tries, but fails at the simple things. Starts with there being no hostess as you arrive, then no smile when you are finally greeted. Continues with wait staff not at your table for over 5min after you ae seated. Then having to wait another 30min for a salad and fried octopus, while waters weren't being refilled. Food itself was not presented well and seemed like it had sat in the warmer for a while. Same went for the main dishes, which we waited another 30min for. I am all about taking my time for a noce dinner, but feel like delivery could be improved here.
Having traveled extensively in Italy and eaten at Michelin starred restaurants several times, I am afraid Armani's is nowhere close to those experiences, except when it comes to how much it charges. I guess this is a function of limited competition in town and the unique setting of the place, which has made the owners comfortable and not seeking to maintain a high level of execution in the dinning room or kitchen.
It's a shame, because the place has potential.

I have been here twice and orderd the same dish ( Swordfish) but the taste and presentation is not consistent. First time it was just awesome and second time it was over cooked , not tasty and bad garnishing.
Be consistent. I suggested this to my friend expecting the same quality and taste but not happened.

I had not been to Armani's in a few years. It is apparent that the prices have gone up (wine mark-up is 250%; normal is say 200%) and the quality of the food gone down. I ordered a filet & lobster tail. The former was already sliced, suggested a lesser quality cut of meat; it also doesn't hold heat as well. The latter was grilled and black at the edge's (overcooked). The glass of wine I was served was only 1/3 full (and this at $18/glass for a wine that retails for $35 - $40/bottle). The waiter kept calling me "boss" and the busboy was refilling my wine glass virtually every time I took a drink (service TOO attentive). My advice is this: if you want a really nice restaurant experience in Tampa, go to BERN's. They are worth the money; this place ISN'T.

We celebrate our anniversary each year by staying at the Grand Hyatt and dining at local restaurants. We became engaged at Oyster Catchers over 27 years ago and like to return to the 'scene of the crime'. We have tried Armani's multiple times, hoping for great things given the reviews. Each time we have been disappointed. The selections are limited and prices are high. We have no problem paying well for a good restaurant, but expect excellent food and service. This year, we were seated in the back of the restaurant, viewing the airport and roadways - not the water. The server was adequate, but not at all cordial. I prefer a less pretentious setting.

A fabulous Birthday Dinner... we had the Chef's Tasting Menu and each dish was very good even bordering on great! Seared scallop on fennel slaw was amazing as was the veal tenderloin.
We loved the dessert tastings as well. We would celebrate any event here.
One of the best restaurants in Tampa, FL by far.

Overall the food and ambiance was outstanding. One issue that put a damper on the evening was related to the bottle of wine ordered at dinner. The bottle we ordered was also served by the glass. It was clear that the bottle brought to our table had already been open and had a glass poured from it. The server accommodated us, but it was disappointing given the circumstances and it was never admitted to us that the bottle had in fact been open.

The antipasto is a must! Delightful , varied and flavorful. Drinks were very expensive and our group of eight had 6 meals show up and then we had to wait almost five minutes for the other two people to get theirs. Desserts are lovely.
